As ever, Top Ten Tuesday is created and developed by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme: SERIES WE HAVEN’T FINISHED YET.
- Noughts & Crosses by Malorie Blackman
Why haven’t I read this? I should really read this. I read the first one more or less when it came out in in the early 2000s, but never finished the series because I was obviously a HUGE LOSER who made TERRIBLE CHOICES. (Nothing’s changed, then.)
- Wind on Fire trilogy by William Nicholson
Again, I started this series as a child. I have no idea if it’s worth picking up again. Is it any good? SOMEONE TELL ME WHAT TO READ.
- Remnants by K.A. Applegate
If you know me (or listen to my podcast) you’ll know what a vocal Animorphs fan I am. I also love K.A. Applegate’s fantasy series Everworld, and I’m pretty sure I’d love Remnants if I ever got round to reading it all. I’ve been thinking of doing a readalong/recap series here on the blog actually…
- Exodus by Julie Bertagna
I’ve read Exodus and it was pretty good. I picked up Zenith in the library book sale a few months ago. Whether I’ll actually ever read it or not is a different thing.
- Millennium series by Stieg Larsson
I’ve only just read The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and The Girl Who Played With Fire. I’d been planning to stop there, as I’d been told that The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest wasn’t much good, but then THAT ENDING! I have to continue. And there’s a fourth now, too.
- Night School by C.J. Daugherty
C.J. Daugherty seems to be at every YA event I go to, and every time I hear her talk I think “Man, C.J. is so cool.” I’m finally reading the first Night School book and I have no idea why I waited so long to pick it up! I’m a sucker for boarding school hijinks and rich kids and murder. I’m delighted Night School is finished now so I can swallow it all up at whatever pace I like.
- Dollanganger series by V.C. Andrews
I read Flowers in the Attic earlier this year. I read it while eating McDonalds. It was a spectacular cultural experience! I’m… probably not going to read any more of the series.
- Yu-Gi-Oh! Millennium World by Kazuki Takahashi
I own this whole series and I am 100% into that Ancient Egyptian card game life, I’ve just never ever sat and read these seven volumes of manga. Yu-Gi-Oh! is so good, okay.
- xxxHolic by Clamp
I’ve read all of the glorious mess that is Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle but I never finished xxxHolic. xxxHolic is a totally different beast and I am intrigued by it and should probably finish it. Maybe it’s time to get back into manga? Incidentally, the anime series’ opening song is a proper bop – here’s a Youtube link.
- Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
I loved Code Name Verity, but I only read it last month. I need time for the emotional dust to settle before I pick up Rose Under Fire.
Have you read any of these series? Have you abandoned any? Are you as confused by me talking about manga as I am? Let me know in the comments!
